I've narrowed the problem on my foreman 500 down to the first gear is going,clunks and pops while driving but is fine 2nd and up. Gonna replace the gear,can it hurt it to drive it with just 2nd? heard on here 1st is really only needed for towing.Anyone have a link to where I can get the gear online to replace it with? Not sure what i'm looking for.

You can keep it in 2nd. I recently rebuilt my buddy's 06 that had the same issue. He'd been riding it for 4-5 years with no first gear. Replacement gears aren't too expensive ($60ish) but you have to split the engine to do it.

This thread will show you more or less what's involved if you want to tackle the job....third post down shows the old gear and the updated stronger gear.
